Heart Valve That Grows Along With Child Could Reduce Invasive Surgeries

For the first time, a prosthetic pulmonary valve replacement specifically designed for pediatric patients can expand over time inside a child’s anatomy. This could eliminate the need to perform invasive replacement surgeries every few years as the child will not require another replacement procedure until reaching adulthood. More...

Novel ECG Technology Utilizes AI for Early Detection of Heart Disease

Conventional electrocardiographs (ECGs) have always played a limited role in evaluating cardiac dysfunction due to their limited sensitivity in identifying structural and ischemic heart disease. Now, the ECG could become a far more valuable screening tool for the early detection of heart disease through the use of artificial intelligence. More...

First Ever Ureteroscope System Monitors Intrarenal Pressure in Real-Time During Ureteroscopy Procedures

High intrarenal pressure (IRP) after ureteroscopies can cause various post-operative complications including systemic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis and renal damage. Now, the first ever ureteroscope system with the ability to monitor IRP in real-time during ureteroscopy procedures could resolve this problem. More...

Wirelessly Connected Microimplants Enable Patient-Doctor Communication

Researchers have developed a new generation of active, wirelessly connected microimplants that could be implanted in the body for life. In addition to communicating with each other, these implants also allow the patient and doctor to communicate with the network from outside at any time. More...

First-Of-Its-Kind Technology Enables Replacement of Diseased Heart Valve without Surgery

Currently, complex open-heart surgery to repair or replace the leaky heart valve is the most effective treatment for such patients but is offered to just 2% of patients due to a high surgical risk. Now, a unique platform offers a first-of-its-kind technology for allowing implantation of a biological bioprosthesis to replace the diseased valve through catheterization only. More...
